Messing with a release candidate for the sake of a couple minor test
suite tweaks is not my idea of sane release management.

In other words, -1 to putting this in 1.8.0. Instead, I propose we
revert that change and explain how to run Windows tests in the release
notes. We can then reintroduce the change in 1.8.1; it's not as if the
test suite scripts have anything to do with binary compatibility.
